MGS - Master of Gerontological Studies, PhD - Social Gerontology
Miami University offers both a Master of Gerontological Studies degree and a Ph.D. in Social Gerontology. These programs focus and build on three rich traditions of gerontology at Miami University: the multidisciplinary approach characteristic of the field; expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methods; and a critical gerontology perspective that emphasizes the social construction of age and aging.Degrees are granted through Miami UniversityÆs Department of Sociology and Gerontology. Scripps Gerontology Center provides administrative support to the departmentÆs academic programs. Scripps also directs numerous research projects, which provide research experience for graduate students.
